I've been thinking about beauty...

Christmas is a season of beauty for me. With the name Holly, I have a particular interest in a season that exalts beauty. Beauty is the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses. A close relative to beauty is the word LOVELINESS, which even gives pleasure in speaking it aloud. Something is beautiful to us then when it excites aesthetic pleasure.

I've been thinking about windows...

During one of my SoulWork groups, we had come to the point of consecrating three-minute testimonies for the glory of God. I routinely have women formally share their stories one after another with no comments in between. Then, we all stand, with the women holding their papers in their hands, and offer their work up as a sweet sacrifice to God for His use. This is certainly the most precious part of the SoulWork experience for me and I would guess for them, too.
